Sorry I have not been around much. Dont have a lot of off time as of late. Here in 2-3 weeks my step father and I are going to hit the builds real hard and try and get them all knocked out. I have 17 jobs sitting here waiting. I do appoligize for the delay. Anyone that would like their kit return please e-mail me at jbrandy@cox.net and I will get it out asap. I will understand 100%, I dont like waiting myself.

I am also going to be cancelling all future builds except for the kits I currently have. Anyone that paid a deposit for future build slots please contact me at the above e-mail address and I will get a refund out asap. I do appoligize for this but I am just overwelmed and a little frustrated. My wife has told me that the phone has rang as early as 6AM over the last few weeks. I have had a few guys "young kids" try to pull over fast ones on me and I am just fed up with it. Its not worth the BS to make $20 on a rifle sale.


If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me via e-mail (address above) and I will get back to you asap.


Thanks a ton,

J. Newton

If he is still at Gruber every day dealing with the evacuees and having to put up with people complaining repeatedly, I wouldn't blame him one bit.
All of that would definitely be a downer!

Wanna meet me?? Damnit.....hopefully not to me!! lol The thing about somone else havin a build party is that Jnewt is smart when it comes to buildin these things. The rest of us are newbs that aren't too sure of what we're doing. Although I think me and my dad are going to get started on our builds pretty soon (Pookie needs his rivot sqeezers back) my dad has to drill the rivots out of his front trunion on his kit, mine is already drilled out. Don't know if it came that way or what cause I got the kit from my brother Pookie....Danc hates hearing/ reading that name I think....hehehehe.....here's a link to his site that has ALOT of really good info on it about kit building. Ask ....Santanatwo about the info.....very good...let me think....this is a quote I believe that santanatwo said at the JTAC shoot...."Pookie has some of the best information on the web about building these kits"....check out my bro's site, you'll see what he's refering to. pookieweb.dyndns.org:61129/AK/ak.htm Click the link on the left that says "Plum AK 74"....thats the kit I have. And Dan...you still can't have it! hehehehe
